One of my favorite shots from our visit to Bosque Del Apache.  The cranes were coming in at sunset to roost for the night.  The sunset was awesome!

Talk to you again soon.

One day it was here the next it was gone! Don't know where January went, but here I am at the end of it and don't really have anything to show for it. Work has been busy, I've been taking some evening classes and volunteering all weekend at church for the last few weekends. So there hasn't been much time for creating and I've been feeling it. So today while the workmen are here completely re-piping my house and cutting big holes in the walls all over the place, that they assure me will be patched up so no one will ever know, I closed myself in my creative space and made a birthday card. Just one since I've also had the dog in here pacing because she can't go out and bother the workers.

(about the card: I used mostly scraps that were floating around my worktable, and I've been fidgeting with making crepe paper flowers, I kind of like how they turned out. All the ink and cardstock is from Close to my heart. and so is the birdcage stamp and the glitter, of course.)
I must have birds on the brain because tomorrow I'm going with a friend on a photographing trip to the Bosque Del Apache Bird Refuge. Our photography instructor is meeting us there to help us work on our technique. It's supposed to be beautiful, 62 degrees. Can't wait, it should be fun. If I get any good shots I'll be sure and let you know. Talk to you again soon.
